Pelvic organ prolapse (POP), is the descent of pelvic organs (bladder, uterus, rectum) until protrusion through the vagina and related to the loss of normal attachment and support of the pelvic floor. Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is a common problem in elderly women and usually causes various urologic symptoms. One of the most important complications of POP is hydronephrosis. The hydronephrosis is usually mild. Severe hydronephrosis is very rare. Hydronephrosis caused by POP may lead to renal dysfunction and serious urinary infections. Early detection and treatment is very important for preventing irreversible renal damage.

Hereby, we report a case of 65-years-old woman who had massive uterine prolapse with silent severe bilateral hydronephrosis. She had no complaint except a protruding tissue out of her vagina. Renal function was normal and hydronephrosis was detected incidentally. The symptoms may be non-specific and silent until a serious infection or renal dysfunction. Therefore patients with a POP especially with severe POP need to have evaluation and imaging about the condition or the urinary system before a serious pathology occur.
